This is a wonderfully disturbed comic strip, and even green computer type packs a huge punch in this context.

And Wyrecats is back;

I'd have a lot more respect for Rob Liefeld if he didn't have such a huge swipe file. Not sure what's worse, that he's copied so much from other artists, or that his copies are so, so much worse;

Well, this was discouraging. I was looking forward to it as if it was an early Christmas.

I find that anyone who says " I hate anime style" basically means " I only like styles from my childhood and my country and am too much of a fussy baby to entertain anything else". Your art is fine.

When the photo referencing is obvious in a Greg Land style, then the art is hideous beyond compare.

I'd like to think that I find any art that demonstrates fundamental skill and creativity in composition to be attractive, so long as it isn't explicitly bigoted.

Steven-Vincent:I've heard of it. Visited it on occasion. Unlike I guess every other person posting on this thread, I detest the site.

It's not that I object to a site indexing things like genre conventions. But I think they go overboard with the examples of the so-called tropes, and they have turned nearly everything, including just everyday things that happen in stories because they kind of have to, into a 'trope.' They don't have one but I would almost expect to find 'dialogue' as a so-called trope and their claim that the use of conversation, i.e. dialogue, in a story is some kind of trope or genre convention. They also (though they're not the only ones) completely confuse and confound different concepts, like genre conventions, genre-independent literary devices, and cliche's. All of these are effectively the same thing ('tropes') to the people who write the articles on that site, and they are all mixed together indiscriminately on many of the trope pages.

For example, the 'dream sequence' is a literary device, not a genre convention and (I would argue) not a cliche'. It is used in all genres. On the other hand, the villain monologue is a genre convention of the superhero genre. If someone is working in a different genre and uses the villain speech, I dunno what it is, but it is not a genre convention anymore. So if there is a villain speech in, say, a Seinfeld episode, you cannot use it as an example of the villain speech superhero convention. Yet a tropes page will become filled with supposed examples of the 'trope' even though they are not part of that genre convention. This makes the page utterly useless as a reference for someone working in the actual genre, looking for the information on that genre convention so as to do it correctly (i.e., follow the genre rules).

Oh well, that is too long of a rant. But that's why I wouldn't ever make an LL page there and although I'm not going to fight about it if someone else makes one, I would prefer no one did.

TLDR - I don't like TV Tropes, don't use it anymore, and wouldn't use any of the tropes listed there to describe my series as I think they are so broadly defined as to be of no use.


You're not wrong, which is why the site should be taken with a grain of salt. Since anyone can edit it, it too often just turns into an exercise in obsessing over minutae, breaking down the entirety of human culture into a series of boxes, and even trying to create stories based on these chunks of narrative patterns as if they're a recipe that can be followed to the perfect story. But it's a great tool for research, since it gives a lot of information on specific stories with more context than the dry rationality of Wikipedia, and it directs to a lot of links for real-world research as it pertains to stories.

Out of date, but many of you (for or against the site) may like this;

Commissioned a friend to make a Wyrecats TVTropes page, though it's not been recently updated. Anyone who wants to help fill it out will be appreciated for all eternity. It feels a bit gauche for me to edit my own page.

SharpyTheYellowKirby:Yeah but then my skype friends will make fun of me for being a shameless advertiser


And they'd be full of it, because there's a difference between spamming and self-promoting, and the latter is absolutely necessary to get any kind of audience.

Always a pleasure to see Ariane again, naughty nurse wear and suggestive wordplay and all.

And in this week's Wyrecats, you get to do math! Joy!

The Meryl/Johnny Proposal Scene in Act 5 of Metal Gear Solid 4. Especially since it's sandwiched in one of the most gut-wrenchingly desperate and painful sections of video game history, the romance between MGS1's love interest and MGS1's ineffectual pants-shitting enemy guard comes across as a nice romantic comedy bit.

Best comment I've heard about it; "Death Note isn't believable in America because entitled white boys don't wait for magic notebooks to start killing sprees"

Depends on how they're written. If their dialogue consists of broken English and random bursts of their native tongue (like how Colossus of the X-Men often added Russian phrases to his dialogue), then I'd go with heavily accented. If they speak English fluently, I wouldn't bother with the accent unless otherwise noted.

LOve the style of your comic. The character body language and acting really sells the wacky shenanigans.

And in this week's Wyrecats, agendas abound...

Name: Melanie "Mela" Sanchez
Gender: Asexual machine who presents as a female body
Powers: Is a digitized human consciousness inside a shape-shifting robotic armor, with strength enough to lift 100 tons, durability enough to shrug off small arms and extremes of temperature, enhanced reaction times and movement, enhanced optic and sonic sensors, and a variety of energy weapons
Skills: Engineering and programming genius, skilled mercenary

Bloodrose tries to slash Mela, but the sword gets stuck in Mela's body, and she literally eats it, digests it, and hands Bloodrose the pieces back.
